Eminem slams Trump in pro­fane video, calls him racist

Arab News - - COFFEE BREAK -

NEW YORK: Eminem has un­leashed a pro­fane lyri­cal tirade against Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump — say­ing he “came to stomp” and tak­ing aim at Trump’s Twit­ter habits, pol­icy, ap­pear­ance and sup­port­ers.

The rap­per on Tues­day un­veiled “The Storm,” a 4½-minute freestyle rap video recorded Fri­day in a Detroit park­ing garage that aired as part of BET’s Hip Hop Awards on Tues­day night.

Eminem slammed the Re­pub­li­can pres­i­dent as “a kamikaze who will prob­a­bly cause a nu­clear holo­caust” be­fore crit­i­ciz­ing Trump’s on­go­ing cam­paign against NFL na­tional an­them protests.

“But this is his form of dis­trac­tion, plus he gets an enor­mous re­ac­tion when he at­tacks the NFL, so we fo­cus on that in­stead of talk­ing Puerto Rico or gun re­form for Ne­vada. All th­ese hor­ri­ble tragedies and he is bored and would rather cause a Twit­ter storm with the Pack­ers,” he rapped.

He later men­tioned NFL free agent quar­ter­back Colin Kaeper­nick, who is cred­ited with launch­ing the on­go­ing an­them protests. Kaeper­nick told the rap­per on Twit­ter, “I ap­pre­ci­ate you.”

Eminem also took down Trump’s re­cently un­veiled plan for tax cuts, ques­tion­ing: “Then who is go­ing to pay for his ex­trav­a­gant trips back and forth with his fam to his golf re­sorts and his man­sions?”
